Showcasing a few of our favorites spreads from the exquisitely designed and produced “That Book Spider Lake” commission. The project just won 2 awards at the 2018 British Book Design and Production Awards. Here’s what the judges had to say;

‘That Book’ created by Eszter & David and Hurtwood Press was the star of the evening, triumphing in Digitally Printed Books and also securing the prestigious title of Book of the Year. The judges were captivated by the attention to detail, and said it was “devoid of boundaries and designed with boundless imagination”.

It was a very complex undertaking that included a request for a cover that was “bound in water”. So there are metallic papers, color printing, die cutting, foil blocking, acetates, throw outs, postcards, fabrics, giclee prints amongst other things. The challenge was that with fabrics, acetates and special papers, our partners had to develop new and innovative binding techniques to bind the book together properly. Clearly that did not go unnoticed by the judges! We were thrilled, and so to our very happy clients. Thank you to all involved.

You never quite know where your stock library may end up. It was quite a laugh this week when my Irish general contractor said he was planning a trip back to Ireland and had better start searching for some cheap deals. Moments after this conversation I get a ping on my desktop while working at home amid the chaos of home remodeling, and low be hold, smack bang on my screen, the answer to his prayers, (if only he were flying Belfast to Malaga!)  Aer Lingus “Jump In or Miss Out” deals featuring my photography and my young daughter as talent repurposed for an Are Lingus advertisement. Unfortunately Stephen isn’t going to get from San Francisco to Dublin for 49 quid!!
